Celts pretty much smoke the Mavs and the first thing ESPN talks about is how good Luka was... Rose did end it by saying that Brown and Tatum are the most dominant duo in the NBA right now to be fair tho

Feels crazy to say but it was kind of an empty 42. Just plugging along tossing up mid-range jumpers, not playing much defense, while his team was getting smoked. Felt like Tatum impacted the game much more than Luka did even though Luka ended up scoring more.

What was the exchange?
Scal was like, "Never in doubt". Mike was like, "Uhh, I had doubt", and Scal was like "Nah", then Mike was like, "These guys have done it to us many times in a row. It got down to 7, I was worried", so Scal's like, "You're right, your right, but this felt different".

Luka is one of those sneaky good players.. the kind of player you like having on your rec team who you know will score almost every time you get him into the post.. but for most of this game it felt like the offense stopped when he got the ball.. they switched it up at the end of the third and seemed to try to exploit mismatches or do more ball movement and it seemed to work... he's just not going to score enough on his own to beat a really good team.
